What is the time frame for electing employee representatives for informing and consulting on a TUPE transfer?
It is for the employer to decide how many employee representatives should be elected. The number of representatives required will depend on the number of affected employees and the different classes of employees to be represented. For example, if the affected employees are located across a number of sites, it may be appropriate for each site to have separate representation. Where the employees do not fall into distinct groupings with differing interests, it may be appropriate to have representatives who represent the affected employees as a whole.
The employer should ensure that there are enough representatives to represent adequately the interests of all affected employees, while avoiding having so many representatives that the consultation process becomes unwieldy or unnecessarily protracted.
